You should have a decent shot at these schools with your profile assuming you submit a compelling application that is well written and error free. I like that you have considerable experience in a field that direcly relates to your post MBA goal. THis kind of story makes it easy to swallow for the adcom since you have proven credentials and background to find sucess in your chosen field. Also, your story is different from the average Indian applicant's which will help you stand out. CFA is a plus too, since helping classmates is an area in which you can potentially shine, specifically in the finance classes.
